I was in the graduating class of 1942, a war year, a long time ago.
The sharp recollection is of “5-A,” the 11th Age/Fifth Grade, with Edward G. Huey as teacher - an absolutely remarkable person. He had even written a Fifth Grade science book the year before called What Makes the Wheels Go ‘Round, and it was fascinating.
But, in that school year, he took the entire boys’ class on a steam train field trip, all the way to Philadelphia, to spend a day at the Franklin Institute.
